If any, any of the polls were accurate Hillary would be in the WH right now guys.

I was polled. On Monday, I heard my house phone (which I forgot we had) ring and "Gallup Organization" popped up on my t.v. screen. I nearly broke all my limbs rushing to locate that phone. Turns out, they were polling brands of pet food. I've had let downs in my life but that one ranks near the top.

I was. The Quinnipiac University poll. Right before the election. It took about 30 - 45 minutes.

This is exactly my point. You were polled and probably another 1000 or so were included in the same poll. Yet the voting eligible population of the US is around how many hundred million? 226 million in the 2016 election.

Here is the latest trump poll sample size used by Quinnipiac.

The poll had a sample size of 1,361 and a margin of error of 3.2 percent.


1300 people and then they will come out and tell you that the entire country hates the President. Maybe they do, but that poll sure as hell did not come anywhere close to coming to that conclusion.

In a 10-page ruling issued Tuesday, Mehta ó an Obama appointee ó agreed.

"To date, State has searched only data compilations originating from outside sources ó Secretary Clinton, her former aides, and the FBI. ... It has not, however, searched 8 the one records system over which it has always had control and that is almost certain to contain some responsive records: the state.gov e-mail server," Mehta wrote.

"If Secretary Clinton sent an e-mail about Benghazi to Abedin, Mills, or Sullivan at his or her state.gov e-mail address, or if one of them sent an e-mail to Secretary Clinton using his or her state.gov account, then Stateís server presumably would have captured and stored such an e-mail. Therefore, State has an obligation to search its own server for responsive records."

Justice Department lawyers representing State argued that making them search other employees' accounts for Clinton's emails would set a bad precedent that would belabor other FOIA searches.

No way, that's a legit topic haha. Besides I think we all know they would throw your opinion out for not meeting their pre determined outcome

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Thursday shows that 44% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance. Fifty-four percent (54%) disapprove.

I would love to get one of those polls; I would really mess with their heads about which ones taste the best and which ones really gave me the s#!+$.

D*mn it!! I wish I would have thought of that. That would have been fun. Instead, I begged "Jessica" (to the point of annoyance) to put me in touch with anyone involved in their political polling. Apparently, she was immune to my charm.

Unfortunately for me it is. However, I don't fit that mold. There are a few on here that have met me and can vouch for that.

I think the dude performing the poll was surprised at some of my responses based on my area code.

He was particularly entertained by the response "Lock Her Up" when he asked my opinion of HRC. Of course that wasn't one of the options on his multiple choice list.

I had a Gallup pollster call me back in 2015 and asked if they could include me on a long-term poll where they would call 4 times per year. I said sure. The first time, they asked about 20 questions on my opinion of Obama's job performance and various other general questions. My replies were polite but clearly represented a conservative viewpoint.

Never heard from them again after the first call.

One thing you must understand about polls
Most are weighted with more dems respondents than republicans
Poll results are in the details, not the published results
And like GW there has been and will continue to be constant news media bashing and fake news of Trump and it is expected that results will be lower than expected

I agree, my guess is we could flip their numbers. But, I don't put much stock in any of these polls, remember some gave Hillary a chance to win Texas!!!

No way polls can be skewed.
I believe most polls are taken from people that answer the phone during the day when most conservatives are at work. The people that do answer the phone are probably unemployed loafers and such from highly populated areas. People in rural areas are too busy working and being productive in life to mess with such nonsense and like me just use the blocking feature on such incoming calls. I like to call it my FU button. Naw, no way them polls can be anything but true.
PS: I still have that ocean front property for sale in Arizona.
